I'm heading to Anaheim this summer and curious what the craft beer scene there is like. Anything particularly exciting or "can't miss"?

I have been told Cismontane has some good stuff but it's hit and miss. Someone brought a growler of one of their IPAs to a party and it was excellent.

Gotcha, although I think the saints are more of a thing overseas than in the US, at least based on my experience.

A sword is built for killing, that IS it's purpose. However, I still enjoy fencing. I enjoy watching fencing and I enjoy participating in fencing. Should the federal government step in and say that I can't own a sword because it can, and in fact was designed to, kill?

The same is true for many sporting events around guns. Quick draw events, marksman events, muzzle loading events and of course hunting. An overwhelming majority of gun owners have never killed anyone. According to the numbers we have here, 0.15% of guns purchased last year killed someone. There's no conclusive numbers on how many guns are used for hunting, but a conservative estimate is 51% of gun owners (many surveys were upwards of 80%) and I bet half of those have never even killed anything. 

My point is that the restriction of liberties should not be applied lightly and that this issue, compared to say obesity and lack of universal healthcare, is such a minor drop in the bucket that is US deaths every year, that the cost of losing that freedom is not worth the gain. This boils down to the same type of arguments the Temperance Union made in favor of 18th amendment, and we all know how well that worked out.

I live in Denver, Broncos fans are crapping themselves over facing the Pats.
 
Did Tom Brady and the Pats just punch their #SuperBowl ticket? I say yes. What say you?


Check out Brady throws 3 TD passes, #Patriots beat #Ravens 35-31 at http://sports.yahoo.com/news/brady-throws-3-td-passes-patriots-beat-ravens-011553087--nfl.html
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Tom Brady's third touchdown pass gave New England its first lead with about five minutes remaining and the Patriots reached their fourth straight AFC championship game with a 35-31 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Saturday.

Not that this turns out to have been a problem for the Broncos...

Am i the only one who kind of wants a smartwatch pocketwatch? I don't even think smartwatches are that useful, but a smartwatch pocketwatch? Yeah, that I'd do.

The video only showed the plastic, ditto the photos. Plus I'm thinking more along the lines of a dedicated pocketwatch as opposed to an adapter.

Humans: Just A Twig On The Tree Of Life - CLICK & ZOOM - "3.5 billion years of evolution, in one beautiful infographic. Life started with bacteria. By some cosmic chance, amino acids became DNA and proteins, which together became life. It took roughly 2 billion more years for things to get more interesting…but things got very, very interesting."

"In this graphic by the Tree of Life web project and designer Leonard Eisenberg, we see all 3.5 billion years of life on earth evolving, not through limbs and timelines, but an elegant rainbow swirl. It’s as if our whole history is a colorful bunch of balloons, all tying back to bacteria.

As you look at the graphic, realize that time radiates outward and each kingdom’s appearance is also in chronological order from left to right. What you’ll discern then is a story of origins and mass extinctions, the way life almost bided its time through the Ice Age then hit the gas through the Cambrian Explosion. It was here when the protostomes (everything from trilobites to squids) simply went nuts, and the separation of plants vs. animals as we know them arose.

You’ll see lots of ideas that didn’t work—branches surrounded by small pockets of white or an extinct species. But mass extinctions, while often ending giving rise to new diversity, barely moved the needle on existing diversity. (This graph is constantly expanding, not shrinking). And of course, you’ll see the most important age to mankind, the mass extinction 65 million years ago that killed the dinosaurs and let the mammals have their day. That one did leave a pretty huge mark—a giant hole, in fact, in the branches.

Humans? We showed up about 63 million years later as one of the last bits of brown ink on the mammal branch—the smallest drop of pigment, but more than enough to wipe this beautiful rainbow away."

A great spot with a comfortable atmosphere. Oh, and some really good beer. The Kolsch has been and remains a particular favorite of mine and their pumpkin was one of the best pumpkin beers in the area.

My wife and I had a great experience with Flatirons and our sales agent Paul Solko. We knew what we wanted to test drive, he got us set up and answered all our questions. When we left for another dealership to finish our day of test driving he didn't put on a hard sell or make us uncomfortable (which I couldn't say about other dealerships). The cars spoke for themselves and the comfortable, no-pressure atmosphere sealed it. After we finished our test drives elsewhere, we headed right back to Flatirons and closed the deal. This was a first time buying a new car for either of us and it simply could not have been better. Three months later, we're still pleased as punch and loving the new Crosstrek. We WILL be returning for our next new car.

Golden Hands took out an old window, a crummy old door and a section of the wall and replaced them with a 6' Slider and a new window. They did the work for a great price, they did it well, and they squeezed it into a couple nice days in the midst of some nasty November weather. I can't give any higher recommendation than to say that I look forward to having them do some more work!

I had to replace my garage floor due to extreme cracking from settling. Alpine was able to do the work on short notice, on budget, on schedule, and they did a great job. I would gladly hire them again or recommend them to anyone else.

What is an honest, reasonably priced, competent mechanic worth? Our experiences at Chan have been so good, we almost regret our upcoming purchase of a new car because we won't be able to take it to Chan. There isn't a better shop around. Period.

These guys suck. Teamed up with "Vampire Brands" to sue Clown Shoes brewing for using "Vampire" in the name of their Vampire Slayer beer. Trademarking the work Vampire? How lame and pathetic can you possibly? Here's to hoping TI and Vampire Brands both go out of business.
